A Streetcar Named Desire is one of the most remarkable plays of our time. Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, it is the haunting story of a faded Southern beauty whose illusions about herself are at war with reality. Blanche DuBois, tormented by the memory of her tragic marriage and the scandal she had precipitated in the small town of her birth, flees to New Orleans to find refuge with her sister. But her sensual, crude brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski, resents her presence, and in a violent, passionate rage, exposes her past and cuts off her last chance of escape from the squalid misery of her life. “The remarkable play is a native tragedy, written by one who is both a poet and a first-rate dramatist. On re-reading, it reveals increasing richness of connotation.” – William Rose Benet
